    Hey, I suffer from having small lumps around my vaginal and anal area, they change size from large and sore to hardly noticeable. I have been to see my GP about this condition twice. They proscribed me two different creams, which didn't help. These lumps are painful, and are irrited by trousers and underwear. I am so embarrassed about this. I'm 17 and feel disgusting, I won't let my boyfriend look at me when having sex. What could you recommend to help soothe or conrol these lumps?

    hi, I had a mirena coil inserted just under 2 months ago, and I've just checked for the strings which I was told to do once a month, only this time I've found some lumps in there and am now worried. I've never had lumps in there before, but I can feel 2 large hard grape sized lumps with one very small one above them, and if I push on them they don't hurt or move, just remain hard and put uncomfortable pressure against the internal wall seperating my vagina from my anus. I'm not sure what these are and think maybe they are something to do with the coil? I was advised it could cause ovarian cysts but nothing like this, which is why I'm concerned. They were not there on my 6 week check up just over a week ago. I have a new partner but there hasn't been any sexual activity yet and none for a few months. What are these lumps?

    Hi, Did you find out what is was? I have the same issue. It feels like ive got something stuck in my throat, its drivng me mad!

    I have what feels like a lump/s behind my scrotum It feels like they are at the start of the perineum and behind the epididymis and have a feel like very hard gristly lumps. My partner who is a midwife by trade has told me that' s probably exactly what they are, gristly lumps although I've not heard of this before and worry about any lumps in that area. Anyone heard or had anything like this before? I'm 33 and they've been there for about 8 years a far as I can remember. I'm a bit embarrassed to go to the doctor and unless I'm lying down they're quite difficult to find.

    I started getting lumps in odd places regularly a few years ago, finally told about 4 weeks ago that it's HS, along with lumps in my groin, right arm pit, tops of my legs and bottom I also get them around my eyebrows. Does anyone else get this? What do people find the best for hair removal? At the same time I also started getting a type of eczema on my feet and hands which I think is called pompholyx, does anyone else get both and if so have you been told the conditions are related? I have been on oxytetracycline for ages now, the lumps don't last quite so long but I am still getting a lot of them.

    I am 51, had 2 lots of dermabrasion in my late 20s. I don't get new spots, but my face is covered in lumps containing white smelly thick fluid. When I squeeze these lumps, the smelly stuff comes out, but with 2 or 3 days the lumps are back. These lumps distort my face, they are ugly and so so embarrassing. When my daughter was 5, she would notice the smell from my face and comment how horrid it was. How can I get rid of these lumps once and for all?

    Another thing I have to add; I was advised by my GP at the appointment with him to check my breasts for lumps regularly. I have no idea how to go about this. I was shown briefly but GP appointments are only 5-10 minutes long. And when I do feel them for lumps, I can feel lumps. Loads of them. And I can't compare the lumps in my left breast to the ones in my right breast because they are totally different to each other. So how am I supposed to tell? I have no idea is I'm doing it correctly or if the lumps I'm feeling are normal or not. It scares me.

    I assume these white lumps can be seen sometimes but not always. In your case you may have lumps of old food waste stuck in holes that have been created in your tonsil(s). If you gently push to one side of these lumps you can push thes lumps out.Be gentle and make sure your finger is clean and by the way if it is this then the white lumps (food waste) is very smelly.Not saying this is your answer but you could just check this.

    If they are small skin coloured bumps they are called PPP's. They are harmless and normal. If they are irritating then it could be an STI.

    I'm 27 and have had lumps in my breasts since I was 17. I had a screening and got fluid drawn out of them a few years ago and it just turned out to be FBD. But lately the lumps have been getting larger and more and more are appearing. I don't want to waste the doctors time if the lumps are FBD but, they really, really hurt all the time. I was wondering if women that have FBD should or need to get there brests screened regularly?

    I've had unprotected sex in the past and have recently noticed lots of small white lumps around the vagina. I went to a clinic and got tested but did not mention the lumps. The results came back clear but I am worried that as I didnt mention the lumps that they may have not examined properly. Is this possible or would the swab test etc have shown it up?

    hey guys, i suffer from lumps on my testicles. i am 14 but found the lumps when i was about 12 or 13. They are cysts. Just to ease your minds incase you thought it was anything serious. obviously, i cant guarentee that your lumps are cysts, so its best to visit a doctor, as embarrasing it may be, its worth checking. i thought i would share with you what the doctor told me. Often in young boys, the teste's start producing sperm. these are carried in tubes from the testicles and these may get blocked. these may be the lumps you are feeling. as i said, check with a doctor, and you will probably have to have a scan or something.

    If you've already had a breast examination and mammogram, and the lumps in your breasts haven't changed, it's unlikely that it's likely to have changed to anything sinister in the last 3 years. Your GP should have the official report which will be able to tell you what the lumps were. The most likely cause however is fibroadenoma... which is basically benign breast changes where you get small mobile lumps... if you're worried, go talk to your GP

    i have had lumpy breasts for the past year and a half. The doctor first changed the type of pill i was on. This improved them for a while but a few months later the lumps were back. My breasts often ache and when i touch the lumps they often send sharp pains, it also makes me feel quite sick. I was sent to the hospital for an ultrasound and was told these lumps are just plaques of fat and willcome and go throughotu my life and probably worsen after the menopause.The pain has put me off checking my breasts. And because im constantly finding new lumps i never know when i shud go to the doc.i feel like i am goin constantly and becoming a burden, but im worried if i jus pass it off as a normal lump, in future i may bypass something serious. Does anyone know what sort of lumps i shud b worried about so i can go to the docs less regularly. Thanks
